The 20 picks who preceded the Orioles' selection illustrated little bias based on position or experience. There were four high school pitchers taken ahead of Hall, including the Nos. 2 and 3 overall picks, and five high school position players, including No. 1 overall pick Royce Lewis (shortstop, JSerra High, San Juan Capistrano, Calif.). Five college pitchers were taken and six college position players.
